The / mathematical operator performs decimal point division on a numerical value.

## Syntax

- return_value = number / divisor

## Description

- Number value can be any literal or variable numerical type.
- Return values can be any literal or variable numerical type, but SINGLE or DOUBLE type decimal point returns are likely.
- Values returned may be expressed using exponential or scientific notation using
**E**for SINGLE or**D**for DOUBLE precision. - Use the \ integer division operator to guarantee INTEGER or LONG return values.
- Division and multiplication operations are performed before addition and subtraction in QBasic's order of operations.

## See also

- \ (integer division operator)
- * (multiplication operator)
